Aladdin and the wonderful lamp

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp - Anonymous, Donald Carrick, Carol Carrick Oh, this version of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp was ok. The story was perhaps a bit choppy in places, and there was an awful lot of shifting from story path to story path, so the kids had a slightly challenging time keeping hold of the thread of this tale. I was hearing a lot of "why" and "how come" out of my niece, and I do think that was probably because this telling did shift and move quite a bit.

That said, both kids were wrapped up in the story, and why wouldn't they be? It is a great tale that captures the imagination.
